New Restaurant for A Street?  Could be.

We were all disappointed when the news that KO Pies was closing its doors was reported last year.  Well, looks like another restaurant is hoping to open in the same spot on A Street. 

According to a post on Facebook, an abutters meeting will take place on Tuesday at 7pm at 87 A Street to discuss the new restaurant and a potential beer and wine license.  

Lenox Sophia will be a casual fine dining restaurant offering modern American fare served in a small intimate and casual setting where the chefs cook and serve their food upon completion.  Owned and operated by Chef Shi Mei. 

If you’re really into abutters meetings, there one at 6:00 p.m. also.  Meet at Trillium Brewing at  51 Thomson Place.
Trillium  would like to apply for live entertainment a few nights of the week.
